Course Overview

Data is growing at a phenomenal rate. While the surge in data visualization tools in recent years has helped to present the “what” of the data, businesses still struggle with communicating the “why” of their data findings to the stakeholders. This can hamper the decision-making process, and businesses are thus still unable to fully harness the hidden power behind the sheer volume of data. So how can this gap be plugged? The answer is Data Storytelling.


In this workshop, participants will learn to communicate data findings, tailored to a target audience, by connecting the dots using compelling narratives and visuals such as storyboarding and visual aesthetics. This will hopefully make it easier for the audience to catch on the significant message behind the data, help them make more timely and effective decisions, and hence, have a positive impact on the business.
